“Follow the Shore: Settlement and Sea-Level Histories of Northern Quadra Island, B.C.”

For people who rely on the ocean, changes in sea-level can have a profound effect on daily lives, connections to place, and identity. When we study sea-level from a broader or regional scale, we do not require the time and space specificity that is necessary to examine the effect of highly local sea-level change at a specific time and in a specific place. Thus, the regional sea-level curves that have been well-refined and developed, may not answer (or allow us) to understand and appreciate what this change had on lived lives, particularly in cases where sea-level changed up to several meters in an instant. Human settlement histories, intimately connected to sea-level, can provide a window into the effect sea-level change has on a finer scale that is not currently provided by broader models. Using an intensive coring and dating program in Waiatt and Kanish Bays, Quadra Island, we propose to evaluate how settlements expanded shoreward as sea-levels fell during the Late Holocene.

Bio: Graduating from St. Mary’s University in 2015, I was accepted into the Archaeology graduate program at Simon Fraser University as a Hakai Scholar. My experience in research and excavation ranges from the founding of Halifax, NS, to Early Holocene sites in both NS and BC. Currently, my focus is the investigation of ancient sea-level and human settlement patterns on Quadra Island. I have been part of a number of consulting projects in NS covering the diverse and deep social history of the province. Concepts of “heritage” and the intersection of development and archaeology remains an area of interest for me.

The Archaeological Society meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month (Jan-May, Sept-Nov) at UVic’s Cornett building.
